Lenbrook Previews DALI's CALLISTO Wireless Speakers at 2018 Consumer Electronics Show
DALI series shows integration with BluOS high-res multi-room platform
LAS VEGAS, January 9, 2018 (Newswire.com) - First announced at the 2017 IFA show in Berlin, CALLISTO’s presence at CES 2018 will mark the first time the line will be publicly demonstrated in the United States, offering U.S.-based press and dealers the opportunity to preview the speakers before its anticipated launch later this year. The show runs Jan. 9-12 in Las Vegas, and the speakers will be demonstrated alongside other BluOS Enabled products from Lenbrook International, including Bluesound wireless hi-res multi-room players and select NAD Electronics hi-fi audio components.
The CALLISTO line features a choice of DALI-developed active bookshelf or tower speakers that wirelessly connect to the DALI Sound Hub. Along with built-in Bluetooth aptX™ HD connectivity, the Sound Hub can also be upgraded with an optional BluOS module running the premium hi-res distributed audio and music management operating system from Lenbrook. The award-winning BluOS platform allows CALLISTO to connect to a home’s Wi-Fi network and stream Hi-Res Audio at bitrates up to 24/192 from the growing number of sources integrated into BluOS or from a cloud-based music library. BluOS’ multi-room capabilities allow CALLISTO to connect with up to 64 other BluOS Enabled products within the expanding BluOS ecosystem. Currently, all products in Bluesound’s hi-res wireless multi-room system and many of NAD Electronics’ high-fidelity amplifiers, receivers and custom installation components are BluOS Enabled. All BluOS Enabled players are controlled by an easy-to-use free downloadable app for iOS, Android or Windows or Mac desktops.
We are excited to be able to get early reactions to CALLISTO from U.S. press and dealers. The U.S. market, like others globally, is experiencing a shift in consumer behaviour and we believe that matching high-fidelity-powered speakers like DALI's with a versatile and modern multi-room operating system like BluOS will be a game changer.
